Dish Offers iPad 2 For New Hopper Subscribers
Dish this week made a special offer for new customers of its Hopper with Sling Whole Home DVR. Dish is offering a free iPad 2, in lieu of new-subscriber discounts, for customers who choose it.
The offer is good from May 22 through Sept. 18. It will give potential customers a chance to "sling" programming from their DVRs to their iPads.
"Hopper transforms consumers’ computers, smartphones and tablets, into TVs allowing them to watch, anytime, anywhere," Dave Shull, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at DISH, said as part of the announcement. "Now, with our Hopper and iPad offer, for the first time ever we’ve bundled together everything people need for the true TV Everywhere experience. Providing this device ensures new customers can fully experience all the benefits Hopper offers.”
